Naveen Polishetty’s parents

He completed his Graduation in Civil Engineering from Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology, Bhopal.

Early life:

From a very young age, he used to perform in plays at his school functions. He first performed an act when he was in the third standard.

He was assured to become an actor by the time he was in high-school. But, as his father told him to first complete his studies before doing any kind of experiments with his life, he cleared the exam for NIT, Bhopal.

He chose Mechanical Engineering as his subject-course, but soon after completing his 1st year in Mechanical Engineering, he slid into Civil Engineering.


Thereafter, he started a theatre-cum-club along with his friends, where they used to perform acts and plays. But, after lacking a number of audiences in the theatre, the group started a Band. A Band of Boys. No! Not that one. So the Band started performing English songs. Unfortunately, the numbers of English song-lovers are even less than that of art-lovers in his college, so they switched the lyrics to Hindi and continued their shows.

Soon after completing his graduation, Naveen got a job. Within a month, he was posted in London, where he worked for a Telecom company.

Later, he quit the job for his real passion i.e acting, and moved back to Mumbai. And the interesting part is that Naveen lied to his parents, that he was on vacation and will be back to his work. So he started attending various acting classes and plays and from there the struggle of actor Polishetty started.
